From the first 
moment I met Tim Call, I 
knew I would eventually 
have to write about him. 

Tim has a story that 
could easily come right 
out of an episode of VHl's 
Behind the Music. It is 
interesting in parts, sad 
in others, and inspiring. 
(Not to mention that he 
does sort of remind me of 
Vince Neil from Motley 
Crue with that long 
blonde hair.) 

After interviewing 
him, I have seen the way 
his life experiences have 
shaped his art, songwrit- 
ing and personality. 

Not many people 
have traveled the same 
road as Tim, but some 
have. Tim went from one 
extreme to the other and 
came back with a new 
view on life and a passion 
for music and art. This is 
the story of Timothy Call. 

Born in El Dorado 
on May 24, 1971, Tim says 
that he has always lived 
within 100 miles of home. 

Up until his fifth 
grade year, Tim lived in 
Towanda, where some of 
his earliest memories 
include helping his 

4 ♦ The Grizzly 

grandparents on their 

"I was raised as a 
farm kid, but lived in the 
city," says Tim. 

Out of the joyous 
times of his youth, Tim 
remembers that at the end 
of his fifth grade year 
followed many tough 
times after his parents got 

"I felt as a kid that 
it was my fault that my 
parents were divorced," 
says Tim. 

Tim was the middle 
child in a family that con- 
sisted of his mom, dad, a 
brother and a sister. 

After his father 
moved away, Tim stayed 
with his mom, but later 
went back to live with his 
dad. Tim felt he needed 
some structure in his life. 

In his first two 
years of high school, Tim 
went to Mulvane. 

After living in 
Mulvane, Tim went back 
to live with his mother in 
his junior year, where he 
attended Bluestem. It was a 
much different time for 
him, because he went 
from a strict environment 
to a more comfortable one.

the best you can. " - Timothy Call 

"I became a per- 
son," says Tim. "I was able 
to express myself." 

While living with 
her, Tim's mother encour- 
aged him to be more of a 
free spirit. Tim says that 
this moment in his life 
influenced him the most. 

After graduating 
from Bluestem, Tim took a 
vocal music scholarship at 
Butler County Community 

In his first year, 
Tim tried to get by in his 
classes while also trying 
to balance his art work. 
Tim wanted to finish 
school, but after disagree- 
ments with his instruc- 
tors, he gave up his schol- 
arship and dropped out. 

In his last semester, 
Tim met a girl and from 
then on his life changed 

"It's almost like we 
were supposed to meet, 
like it was fate," says Tim. 

Tim had her in one 
of his classes, but also 
worked with her brother. 
He fell in love quickly 
with her, and found out 
they enjoyed many of the 
same things, including 
the Renaissance. It was 

only a year before they 
were married. 

Tim's marriage last- 
ed for five years and pro- 
duced a child, Niera. 

"I made my wife 
and daughter everything 
in life," says Tim. 

Toward the end of 
his marriage, Tim had 
problems dealing with his 
past and his job that led to 
his depression. 

"I was just tired," 
says Tim. 

His wife was hurt to 
see Tim in so much pain 
and could not deal with it 
anymore, he says. She left 
soon after with their 
daughter and for Tim, 
everything was falling 

Much like Picasso, 
Tim also went through a 
sort of "Blue Period." After 
his wife left, his depres- 
sion grew stronger and 

"It was like I fell 
off a cliff into a well and 
every time I tried to get 
out, the well just got deep- 
er," says Tim. "I hated liv- 

Living through a 
few years of pain, in 1998, 
Tim got a job working as a

cell phone salesman. He had a few girlfriends, 
but no long-term relationships. Tim also start- 
ed again with his art. 

With no real direction at this point in 
his life, Tim lived alone, painting portraits, 
murals and even selling some of his artwork to 
make a living. He had a number of friends, and 
once let one of them move into his house to 
help pay the bills. 

This certain friend might have changed 
Tim's life forever. He played the guitar, but 
wasn't that talented. Tim saw him play and was 
inspired to learn, so he went to a thrift store 
and found a guitar for $50. 

By his third week of playing, Tim 
learned three cords and made it a point to learn 
one more. With the four cords that he knew, 
Tim wrote his first song, called "Winding 
Road." Tim played it for his roommate and he 
was very impressed. 

"I spent two and a half hours trying to 
figure out how to use the four cords that I 
knew to make the song work," laughs Tim. 

With his new hobby, Tim started to 
express himself more through music. He played 
for people, but mostly family and friends. 

Still missing his daughter, Tim wrote a 
G ♦ The Grizzly 

song for her and called it "Niera's Song." 

"If you hear the song, you will hear the 
melody of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,'" says 
Tim. "I used to sing it to my daughter." 

One time, Tim went to the lake for a 
friend's birthday with some of the radio and 
TV people from Butler and they asked him to 
play a song. 

After Tim was finished playing his song, 
he looked around at everyone. They were com- 
pletely silent. 

"They told me that my song was really 
good," says Tim. "Some asked me to record it." 

At this gathering of friends, Tim met 
Victoria Kerr, a radio and TV sophomore from 
England, who had goals of being a record pro- 
ducer. She really liked Tim's music. 

This past summer, Tim was ready to look 
for someone to help him record his music. 
Victoria immediately volunteered. 

While things were starting to pick up 
for Tim, he also decided on a whim to come 
back to school. 

Impressed with Tim's music, Victoria 
and her friend Nicole Mariani, a radio and TV 
sophomore from Andover, decided to make a 
documentary about him. 

"After hearing Tim's music, I was 
inspired to get his music heard," says Kerr. 

In the documentary, Kerr and Mariani 
both plan to have the background behind his 
music, interviews from people who know Tim, 
two music videos and the making of his album. 
It is supposed to capture his pursuit of a music 
career, with the title of the documentary suit- 
ably being called: Waiting to be Famous. 

"There is so much meaning behind Tim's 
words that it inspires me to put images in back 
of them," says Mariani. 

Tim and his crew have already filmed 
one music video for a song called "First 

"After it was done, I watched it and could 
not believe how professional it looked," says 

Tim made regular appearances on 
Victoria and Nicole's radio show on KBTL. Tim 
also got an offer from a KFH DJ in Wichita to 
come and play on a show called "Uncanned." 

"It was funny, because I had my beat up 
guitar with me and the DJ wasn't impressed," 
says Tim. "I was just some guy off the street. I 
sat there for 45 minutes and then he gave me 
about two seconds to prepare a song. I played 
'First Goodbye' and gave it everything I had. 
When I was done, he regretted not letting me 
play more and asked me to come back." 

Currently Tim is working on a new 
music video for "Niera's Song" and is also 
writing more songs for a demo album. 

"Things really picked up when I came 
back to school," says Tim. "I wouldn't be where 
I'm at now if I hadn't." 

These days, Tim just wants to be happy, 
but he still misses his daughter and her 

"I care about them very much," says 

"Relatively, I'm happy, but very lone- 
ly," says Tim. "I'm not looking for fame, but it 
could be looking for me. I think part of my 

passion in my music is because I'm not happy. 

"I would like to have people hear my 
music and share myself with the rest of the 
world. I want to have a legacy to leave 

When I asked Tim were he thought he 
would be in ten years, he told me this. 

"I could be living on the streets or liv- 
ing in a mansion. It's hard to see. If I do not 
make it, at least I will have given it a shot. I 
would like to have time with my daughter. It's 
what I need to be complete. 

"It takes faith to live your life and be 
the best you can. I don't care where I am as 
long as I am happy. At least I know I will have 
lived a good life." 

After finishing my interview with 
Timothy Call, I sort of felt like I did meet some- 
one who was destined to be famous. With a 
strong passion for what he does, Tim has a lot 
going for him. If ten years down the line he 
does make it big, at least I can say I had the 
first interview.

O pring Break is 
fast approaching 
and there is one ques- 
tion on every stu- 
dent's mind. I have 
no money so where 
can I go for Spring 
Break?! Well, you 
may not be able to 
take a cruise to Hawaii 
or fly to Cancun, but 
there are a few places 
in the states sur- 
rounding Kansas that 
are not only cheap, 
but are enjoyable and 
easy to get to. 

The mountain 
of Crested Butte, Colo, 
is a great place to go 
if you feel like skiing, 
snowboarding, snow 
shoeing, going for a 
snow mobile ride or 
dog sledding. It has 
1,000 acres of some of 
the best terrain in 
Colorado. For two days 
on the mountain dur- 
ing March, lift tickets 
run about $95 for two 
days. It is suggested 
that if someone wants 
a cheaper hotel to 
stay in, you should 
lodge in the town of 

:■ , , i -rDWB* 

Crested Butte. It is 
only three miles from 
the actual mountain. 
So if snow activities 
are what you want 
this Spring Break, 
check out Crested 

Outdoors type 
people will want to try 
out Turner Falls, Okla. 
It has activities rang- 
ing from horseback 
riding and hiking to 
fishing and volley- 
ball. They have beau- 
tiful outdoor attrac- 
tions as well, like a 
7 7 -foot waterfall and 
natural caves. 

Admission to the park 
is $2.50 during 
March. If you want 
to be a trooper and 
camp out all night it 
will only cost around 
$4.50. For those who 
would rather have 
running water and a 
bed to sleep in, the 
ideal thing to do 
would be to rent a 
cabin there. They 
are really cheap and 
run about $45 a 
night. Nature lovers 
would enjoy Turner

Warm beaches 
and the Gulf waters 
sound inviting, don't 
they? Between places 
to shop, clubbing, 
fishing, boating and 
of course miles of 
beaches, there will 
always be something 
to keep you busy. 
Inner-land hotels 
would be cheaper 
than the ones on the 
coastline and there 
are many to choose 
from. This atmos- 
phere is perfect for 
Spring Break at South 


St. Louis is the 

home of the Gateway 
Arch. It is 630 feet 
high and once you 
reach the top you can 
over look the whole 
city. St. Louis has 
many attractions 
such as the Aloe Plaza 
that has many foun- 
tains in the park. 
The Dome at 
America's Center, 
which is the home of 
the St. Louis Rams, is 
also a neat sight to 
see. Shopping, muse- 
ums, restaurants and 
clubs are all things 
that can be taken 
into consideration

while there. The 
nightlife there is a 
main attraction with 
lots of top-name 
entertainers perform- 
ing in different 
places around the 
city. If city life is 
what you are search- 
ing for, than St. Louis 
is the place to be. 
All of these 
places can be easily 
found on the road and 
none take more than 
half a day driving to 
get there. So road trip 
it! But if you absolute- 
ly want to fly, check

This will give you 
some of the lowest 
prices for airline 
tickets. But no matter 
where you go for

Women's self-defense is becoming more popu- 
lar and now it's coming to Butler County Community 

Joe Wilk, Hutchinson sophomore, has started 
up a class for women to learn self-defense through 
the art of Jiu-jitsu. The class meets on Fridays only 
at 3 - 5 p.m., but Wilk will stick around for extra 
hours if someone has questions or wants to practice 
some moves. 

Fliers were placed around the campus to 
intrigue women as well as men to look into the class. 
The fliers say that the class costs $35. It is a non- 
credit course right now. The class is located in room 
104 in the 1500 building. 

"I teach women how to defend themselves 
against male attackers," says Wilk. 

Wilk graduated from Hutchinson High School a 
semester early and was looking for something to do. 

Wilk throws Scott 
Roberts over his body

\jitsu move. Wilk

House of Payne Presents: 

Weighing in at 205 
pounds, Wilk met 
Earnest Bell, his first 
Jiu-jitsu instructor. 
After working out for 
six months, Wilk lost 
45 pounds. Wilk 
works at House of 
Payne in Wichita, as 
an assistant instruc- 
tor. It is located at 417 
S. Hydraulic. 

"Jiu-jitsu is a 
great workout and 
also teaches you life- 
saving techniques," 
says Wilk.

ally seen two girls 
beat guys in competi- 
tion. The key to being

nique. Most women in 
reality will not be able 
to overpower a man, 
so you need to learn 
other ways to defeat 
your attacker or oppo- 

Jiu-jitsu com- 
bines a series of 
throws, takedowns, 
joint manipulations 
and chokes. In this 
class you won't learn 
any fancy moves. You 
are going to learn 
moves that work in a 
real-life situation. 

"It teaches you 
to use techniques on 
the ground, because 
95 percent of street 
fights end up on the 
ground," says Wilk. 

There are many types of Martial 
Arts throughout the United 
States which people participate 
in. One of the less known martial arts is 
Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do is a Korean 
martial art, which teaches empty hand 
and foot fighting forms, self-defense, 
and weapons. This ancient martial art 
traces its lineage back 2000 years to the 
Korean Peninsula. 

In order to promote improvement 
in skill, one must learn the basic actions 
and practice them constantly until they 
are perfected. Tang Soo Do is a tradition- 
al martial art based on respect for life. It 
is important to be aware of your sur- 
roundings and maintain self-discipline 
and respect toward the art, instructors 
and fellow students. This discipline will 
cause your respect of others, and for 
yourself, to grow into your life outside 
of the Dojang (place of training). 

I have been studying Tang Soo Do 
for the past six months at jade Mountain 
Martial Arts in Hutchinson. A typical 
day of practice starts out with going 
through the basics. Basics include a 
series of kicks, punches and blocks. You 
do basics so you remember the move- 
ment and get stretched out. Then you 
practice your forms, which are a combi- 
nation of movements combined with 
techniques that we have learned in 
class. After that we usually do bag work 
or learn new combinations. Then, about 
every other practice, we do take downs 
and wrist grabs, which are techniques 
that you would use in a real life defense 
situation. You can use these to stop 

About every three months we 
have a belt test. A belt test consists of 





accurately doing the forms, wrist grabs 
and any of the new material that we 
have learned. In Tang Soo Do you start 
out as a white belt and work your way up 
until you get a midnight blue belt. Tang 
Soo Do does not use black belts because 
black can represent death, and midnight 
blue represents peace and tranquility. 

I have learned a lot over the past 
six months. I have learned mostly about 
confidence, but also have learned more 
about respect for the art and everyone 
in it. When you first start something like 
this it can be overwhelming because at 
first it doesn't feel like you are making 
much progress and your body won't do 
what you want it to. Over time you start 
to remember things and you become 
more balanced and flexible. I find Tang 
Soo Do a very fun and worthwhile 
learning experience.

So here I am, driving southbound 
on Andover Road, jammin' to some 
tunes, singing my little heart out, mind- 
ing my own business (do-da-do), when 
all of a sudden, out of the corner of my 
right eye, was this big honkin' 
American flag! Only. wasn't a flag, it 
was a house! I would have slammed on 
my brakes to stop and stare in awe, but 
that probably wouldn't have been a 
good idea considering, "There are other 
cars on the road, Terretta!" 

Needless to say, I kept driving. 
But. ..I said to myself, "I will stop and 
find out the scoop behind this massive 
display of patriotism." 

So, I did. I'm a woman of my 

Turns out, Mario and Cassie 
Aberle of 649 Andover Road, "couldn't 
find any flags" after the September 11 
attacks on the Twin Towers and the 
Pentagon. So, instead, they decided to 
make a flag. ..out of the front of their 

"Tons of people stop by," says 
Cassie. "At least one person a day. We 
sometimes have to yell at them to get off 
the road. Anyone is more than welcome 
to pull in the drive and take pictures." 

Mr. and Mrs. Aberle weren't 
alone in their patriotic art, their five- 
year-old son, Lars, helped Cassie paint 
the red stripes. As for the stars, Mario 

stenciled and painted them himself, one 
by one. 

Among these stopper-by-ers, or 
however you would say that, one just so 
happened to be from nowhere else but 
the "Big Apple" itself. To make a long 
story short, he was touched by the pub- 
lic spirit of the art and placed his pic- 
tures of the house on the cover page of 
his web site,, among 
several other dedications to the 
September 11 victims. Check it out, it's 
worth it! 

In fact, take the short drive to the 
intersection of Highway 54 and 
Andover Road. If you're driving east 
from El Dorado, you'll hang a left and 
head south for about one block before 
you see the big honkin' American flag 
directly to your right. Believe me, you 
can't miss it. Even at night, the house is 
lit up with small yard lights. Do it! It's 
worth it! Also, don't hesitate to step on 
the "Welcome" mat, ring the doorbell 
and meet the Aberle family. 

"We just thought it was important 
to show our spirit and to show what 
America really means," says Cassie.

Ma computer virus is 
and that they can 
make your computer 
stop working. However, few 
people know exactly how this 
is accomplished and why they 
aren't overrunning every 
computer in the world. 

During first semester, a 
virus named "PE_NIMDA.E" hit 
Butler and also other parts of 
the country. "The virus 
invades computer systems and 
sends a copy of itself to the 
address book. The way that 
this virus works is that it fills 
up the hard drive with '*.eml' 
files until you are unable to do 
anything. This happened to 80 
percent of the server at 
Butler. Due to this virus, our 
computers were down for 
nearly 30 hours. Within 24 
hours, the staff at Butler was 
able to find the virus, contain 
and stop the virus, before 
spreading any more. This low 
threat but fast spreading virus 
cost Butler more than 
$100,000," says Mike Powell, 
Network Administrator for

Let's imagine a desk 
clerk coming to work every 
day to his office. Every day 
finds a stack of papers witl| a 
list of tasks that he must fu] 
fill during his wa^ng djty. 
He takes the top paper from 
the stack, reads the instruc- 
tions of the superior, follows 
them carefully, and then 
throws the "used" paperwRto 
the wastebasket. Suppose a 
bad guy sneaks into the office 
and inserts a paper into the 
stack with his own task, 
which goes like this: 

• "Copy this paper two times 
and put the copies into neigh- 
bors' stacks." 

What will the desk clerk 
do? He will copy this paper 
twice, destroy the original one 
and continue to the next 
paper in the stack and will go 
on working as usual. (What 
will his neighbors do, being 
as careful workers as he is, 

when they find a new task?) 
They will do the same thing as 
the first one did: Copy the 
paper twice and give it to 
other desk clerks. Altogether

of anti-virus. The principle of 
anti-virus scanners is based 
on checks of files, sectors and 
system memory, and search 
for known and new viruses. To 
search for known viruses so- 
called "masks" are used. A 
virus mask is a virus specific 
constant sequence of code. If 
a virus contains no constant 
mask or the size of the mask is 
insufficient, other methods 
are used. An example of such 
a method is an algorithmic 
language describing all possi- 
ble code sequences, which one 
may meet in files infected 
with that virus.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children accredited 

Butler's Educare center for being a high-quality early childhood program. 

"Only seven percent of childcare centers in the United States are accredited 

by the NAEYC...," says administrator Sue Sommers. 

Wouldn't it nice to be able to attend 
school and/or work and not have to worry 
about the safekeeping of the light of your 
lives, your children? Well, Butler's childcare 
program, EduCare, is the place your children 
belong. The EduCare center allows students, 
faculty, staff and others in the community to 
work or go to school while their children are 

being well taken care of by certified teachers 
and directors. 

As well as being certified, they are also 
state licensed by the health department and 
nationally accredited. The National Association 
for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) 
just accredited the EduCare center this year on 
Oct. 24. 

"Only seven percent of child care 
centers in the United States are accredited by 
the NAEYC, so it is a great accomplishment for 
us," says administrator Sue Sommers. 

In order to be accredited, a center has to 
meet the following criteria when reviewed by 
the association: have frequent, positive, warm 
interactions among teachers and children; 
planned learning activities appropriate to the 
children's age and development, such as block 
building, painting, reading stories, dress-up 
and active outdoor play; specially trained 
teachers and directors; ongoing professional 
development; a sufficient amount of adults to 
respond to children individually; many varied 
age-appropriate materials; respect for cultural 
diversity; a healthy and safe environment for 
adults and children; inclusive environments; 
nutritious meals and/or snacks; regular, two 
way communication with parents who are 
welcomed visitors at all times; effective 
administration; and ongoing, systematic 

The EduCare center met all criteria and 
therefore was accredited. It took the center 
about a year to fully meet all criteria with the 

help of grants and staff. The Social 
Revenue Service (SRS) provided the 
center with a $25,000 block grant that 
helped pay for improvements. The 
areas that were improved were 
playground equipment, Americans 
with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance 
sidewalks, infant deck, more special 
needs equipment and much more. 

"We added multicultural toys, 
dolls, books, play food and dress-up 
clothes to help the children understand 
the different diversities," says director 
Lisa Byfield. 

Several of the improvements 
were focused on education and different 
classroom stations. The center added 
handicap and special needs books to 
help kids understand the differences in 
people. They also put computers in six 
of the nine classrooms to help educate 
the children. In all classrooms, almost 
everything is labeled, to help the kids 
identify things and where they belong. 
Along with learning came environment 
improvements such as quiet areas, play 
stations and eating areas. 

The teachers also play important 
roles in the childcare center. Earlene 

Bogart is the lead teacher for the 2-year-olds at the 
EduCare center. She is with her children all day and 
helps to educate them and incorporate different things 
about each season into their activities. 

"We sing songs, do finger plays, process art, play 
outside and study the seasons and holidays," says Bogart. 

For the fall season Bogart and her children stud- 
ied trees and looked at leaves. Then for Thanksgiving 
the children learned about the importance of families 
and being thankful. In preparation for Christmas the 
children wrote letters to Santa and practiced for their 
Christmas program on Dec. 7. 

Thanks to Butler and the staff at EduCare, we 
don't have to worry about the safety or education of our 
children while we are at school or work. It looks like 
they are in nationally accredited hands.

Madame Arcati talks with Charles Condomine 
before preforming the seance. 



f j 

few* A 

On Nov. 14-17 ', seven 
students took stage in the pro- 
duction of the Broadway clas- 
sic, "Blithe Spirit." 

Director Deidre Ensz, 
newcomer to BCCC, was in 
charge of the play along with 
Bernie Wonsetler who served 
as the set designer. Tia 
Easterday served as the stage 
manager. Ensz says she chose 
this particular comedy 
because she had previously 
performed in it and she saw it 
on Broadway in 1987. 

"I find it delightful and 
immensely entertaining, yet 
challenging for students," 
says Ensz. 

The play, written by 

Noel Coward, takes place in the 
summer of the '40s in Kent, 
England. The main character, 
Charles Condomine (Gabe 
Templin) is writing a book 
about mediums so he invites 
Madame Arcati (Angi Pratt) 
along with his friends Mrs. 
Bradman (Rachel Moser) and 
Dr. Bradman (Eric Lowery) 
over for dinner and a seance. 
Condomine wants to prove that 
Arcati is an imposter, but she 
has different plans. 

All the time, the maid, 
Edith (Kami Oliver) served the 
guests and took care of the 
duties all while trying to slow 
down her step, as Charles told 
her to do several times. 

The five, including Mrs. 
Condomine (Emily Osborne) 
perform the seance, but all 
except Charles act as if noth- 
ing of the supernatural 
occurred. Shortly after the 
seance the ghost of his first 
wife, Elvira(Natalie 
Schrieber), appears and 
begins to torment the 
Condomines. Ruth couldn't see 
Elvira, so she thought Charles 
was going mad. 

Elvira is upset that her 
past husband has remarried 
and she wants him to join her 
in death. Throughout the play, 
she wants to kill Charles so 
they can be together, so she 
does something to the car to 

22 ♦ The Grizzly 

make it wreck, expecting Charles to drive her 
into town. Instead, Ruth takes the car and she 
dies in an accident caused by Elvira. 

By the end of the play, Charles 
Condomine is haunted by the ghosts of both 
of his wives and has to deal with it. 

The set was well decorated with 
numerous antiques. The stage was set to look 
like a parlor, equipped with a sofa, piano and 

The performers were chosen from the 
group of about 25 students at the audition all 
competing for a role in the play. 

Ensz says it takes "courage, creativity, 
the willingness to take emotional risks, com- 
mitment, professionalism, passion, the ability 
to feel things deeply and to convey those 
feelings to others and a love for acting." 

Emily Osborne, Augusta Freshman, 
majoring in English/Theatre says, "Deidre is 
such a great director. She is patient and 
understands us. Everyone in the cast is will- 
ing to work their butt off for the show." 

On Nov. 18-19 the theatre group pre- 
formed in the Show Choir Festival. The vocal 
concert was held Nov. 30-Dec. 2. They also 

held a dance concert Dec. 6-7. 

Whether it be playing the role of 
the witty maid or the ghost, these students 
got into character. They were dressed in 
'40s apparel and the ladies had their hair 
done up. The men looked more like busi- 
nessmen with their suits and ties. Madame 
Arcati had the most eye-catching outfit, 
which was a very colorful dress and make- 

Ensz says, "Theatre is important to 
our culture and to society. It can teach, 
reveal, celebrate and heal. The list goes on. 
It's great to be a part of such an endeav- 

Acting takes a lot from a person. 
One must be dedicated to making the per- 
formance the best. They must play the part 
and do it well. And they did. It was a won- 
derful to see, with humor and drama and 
plenty of great lines. So get out there and 
see our theatre productions^ who knows 
what it will do to you. They could make you 
laugh or cry, but it will definitely open 
your mind to different perspectives.

ith the fall concert already com-

bands are working hard on keep- 
ing the beat. 
The ensembles are now working on 
sessional repertoire and developing basic theo- 
ry and technical skills on their instruments, 
says Band Director Roger Lewis. 

Lewis believes the students who have a 
realistic understanding of where their capa- 
bilities lie in this continuum, combined with a 
certain degree of humility and optimism, are 
the ones who contribute in the most positive 
way to an ensemble. 

" I try to help my students achieve this 
understanding of themselves and to develop a 
sense of unity with the other members of the 
ensemble," says Lewis. "In my view a profes- 
sional or student with moderate capabilities 
and a wonderful attitude contributes more pos- 

itively to an ensemble than one who is 
more advanced and arrogant and self 

Attitude is what makes a good 
band member, says Lewis. If the musi- 
cian does not have the will to learn or 
play music they will not succeed in the 

The skill of the band members 

" I have worked professionally 
with a vast number of musicians rang- 
ing from barely capable to outstand-

Before Lewis became a band 
director he did many things, ranging 
from insurance, advertising to retail. 
He worked in many fields before he 
found what he liked. 

Lewis studied music at the 
University of Kansas. 

In the mid '60s Lewis decided to

"Since I had not completed my 
music education degree I decided after 
many years to return to school with the 
objective of completing my degree. During 
that period of time there were two things 
that occurred which created a desire for 
teaching. First was the training I had in 
sales and the opportunity to interact with 
large numbers of people. Second and most 
important was my conversion 28 years ago 
to the baha'i Faith. The baha'i Faith places 
the highest priority on education," Lewis 


Coming up in the spring, Lewis will 
lead the band toward performances in 
April for the annual Butler Jazz Day con- 
cert. In May the general instrumental 
department will hold their concert. In the 
meantime, the jazz ensemble and show 
band will visit numerous area high 

"As a community service we further 
hope to attract future students to Butler 
County Community College," says Lewis.
